    My journey at Hollywood Elementary started in 1997 as a volunteer/ substitute teacher. I was hired in 2000 as a kindergarten aide and since then have been an aide in both pre-k and kindergarten, a literacy tutor, and a secretary. I currently serve as the administrative assistant for the school. I love working with children and the Hollywood community has become my extended family. I am so blessed to have a job that I enjoy each and every day.

    Born and raised in Salina, Kansas, I have called South Carolina home for the past 26 years. I live on beautiful Lake Murray with my husband Randy, my daughter Randi Danielle, our dog Aspen and our newest addition to the family Randi’s Tabby cat, Cali. My husband and I own Renegade Trucking Company, LLC and my daughter attends USC. Go Gamecocks!!

    I attended Kanas State University and before moving to South Carolina had a career in the nursery/landscape business. My hobbies include reading, baking, photography, and gardening.

    I have been working at Hollywood Elementary since February of 2013 and am thrilled to be a part of the HES family.  My parents graduated from high school here, and I went to Hollywood through the eighth grade before heading to SHS.  This school and community hold a very special place in my heart!  I continued my educational career at USC-Aiken (Go Pacers!) where I received a BA in Elementary Education and also have graduate credit from Clemson University (Go Tigers!).

    I am married to David Douglas from Winnsboro, SC.  We have one daughter, Caitlyn, who is in the seventh grade at Saluda Middle School.  My husband is a poultry farmer, and we live near the school on family land.  We have one dog, two cats, and lots of fish.

    In my spare time I love spending time with my family; being involved in activities at my church; playing around on the computer; photography; reading; shopping; and crafts.  My family and I are huge Clemson Tiger fans and love attending games or watching them on TV.  We are also huge Disney fans and try our best to travel to Walt Disney World at least every other year or as much as possible. We are proud Disney Fanatics! My absolute favorite Disney character is Mickey Mouse!
